Hiya! #PSA
The @NAACP publishes yearly report cards based on how House & Senate members vote on legislation pertaining to civil rights. If you truly want to be an ally to @Blklivesmatter go to:
naacp.org/report-cards/
@ava @JordanPeele @JoeBiden @KamalaHarris @BarackObama
naacp.org/report-cards/ see how your state & local reps scored on #NAACP report cards. Some of us are #voting today. #vote in November. Vote every single time you can!
It’s your duty, your voice & a way to actively support #BLM #YourVoteMatters #KnowledgeIsPower
@MichelleObama
Who scored an F? Who is failing?
Prepare to NOT be shocked. Their favorite color is green but they're red in the face @GOP
Thing is, they still draw in lots of money from corporations that supposedly support & stand in solidarity with the Black community. (More on that below)

Jordan obviously didn't bother to read the user agreement when he signed up for @Twitter. Apparently, neither did Trump. Difference is, Jordan could lose his account for breaking Twitter's rules. Trump? He won't lose a single tweet. (thread)
"You may not engage in the targeted harassment of someone, or incite other people to do so."

#JackDorsey: Trump Twitter Immunity clearly applies to Sr & Jr. What about Jared? Tiffany?

In 2016, black voter turnout dropped in a presidential election for the 1st time in 20 years. While turnout among Millennials & GenXers was up in '16 (yeah!), turnout among black Millennials dropped by nearly 5 points. Don't give away your power. #vote
The rate of voting differs widely between demographic groups. The percent of eligible voters who said they cast a ballot in 2016:
59.6% white
59.6% black
49.3% Asian
47.6% Hispanic

#Bernie Sanders needed to overperform with voters under 30 to win the nomination. Instead, younger voter turnout dropped by almost 3% compared to 2016. Don't give away your power. #vote

Hi world - I’ve had enough and have too much to say to stay silent any longer.

I’m a practicing #physician and #publichealth expert on the frontlines. Trained at #Harvard, treated patients at one of the worlds best hospitals, the #MayoClinic. I’m not dumb...
I’m a #WALKAWAY dem. Im eternally grateful, from the bottom of my heart, for people like @BrandonStraka and @ScottPresler for helping to articulate some of my views and opinions. You gave a voice to millions, #THANKYOU

#WalkAwayFromDemocratsForever
I voted for Obama. Twice... (I’m sorry!)

Then I watched as he dropped more bombs than any other president in history.
And signed the #TPP with some of the worst human rights abusers on the planet.
And presided over decimation of marginalized communities, mostly those of color

📬NC voters who wish to #VoteByMail may go ahead and request an absentee ballot NOW for the #2020Elections - no excuse needed.

THREAD on #voting "absentee by mail" in #NC:

1/
🗳️To request an absentee ballot, registered NC voters complete this form to request an absentee ballot.

🖊️Sign the form (pen to paper)

📬Mail it to your county board of elections

3/

s3.amazonaws.com/dl.ncsbe.gov/F…
Typically, only a small percentage of NC voters vote via absentee-by-mail & an increase is expected this year - so get your request in early to ensure you get a ballot in time.

NC Voters can find their county board of elections address here: vt.ncsbe.gov/BOEInfo/ 4/

Long Thread [Alert]

1/n Something big is up at @binance. First @Poloniex, then @steemit and now @CoinMarketCap. If we go by the reported news on the @TheBlock__ , this could be worth $400 Million. Assuming that it is not an #AprilFoolsDay prank...

theblockcrypto.com/post/60371/bin…
2/n Over the last 12 months, @cz_binance has acquired at least three companies - @BinanceJEX, @WazirXIndia, and @dapp_review. Looking at the big picture, it is a notable development as @cz_binance mops up the key players in the #decentralized fundraising space
3/n If you're looking to develop a #dapp, your best best is soon going to be the #Binance Blockchain. Why? Because it tacitly lets #developers know that it has the most well-oiled machinery in the much muddied #crypto space.

We should expect to see more talking head recommendations for how to alter the #voting process to address #coronavirus concerns. Voting by mail is going be a part of the solution.

Here's why I don't think it can be the whole solution for the #2020election

THREAD:
States should move to allow more voting by mail independent of recent developments. The @BPC_Bipartisan Task Force on #Elections recommends just that. We support moves by our friends at @voteathome to ensure all Americans have the option to vote by mail

bipartisanpolicy.org/report/logical…
That doesn't mean all states have taken the important steps to update laws and technology to administer an #election with a very high % of #voting by mail, and it's unlikely many can get up to speed before the #2020election. Many state legislatures have already adjourned

#CAPrimary: One of the disasters this year is caused by the fact that LA and other counties cut polling stations by 90%. #CaliforniaPrimary #CAPrimary2020 #CaliforniaPrimary2020 #BernieSanders #Bernie2020
They were replaced by so-called “voting centers “ which anyone would know were deeply insufficient and unprepared — especially as #Bernie got out the word that you had to bring in your NPP ballot to exchange it for a Crossover Democratic ballot. #CAPrimary #CAPrimary2020
There's zero question about who was hurt: Regular Democrats tend to mail in their ballots. But most NPP independent voters, who widely favor #Bernie, could not mail in their ballots because they had to do the exchange. gregpalast.com/how-california… #CAPrimary #CAPrimary2020

Voting for @BernieSanders is the beginning. He's going to need us all to #sacrifice and #fight for the changes we need.

What does that mean?

It means a #GeneralStrike for #MedicareForAll.

It means a #GeneralStrike for student debt relief #SundayThoughts 1/
It means a #GeneralStrike for medical debt relief.

It means a #GeneralStrike for a cap on CEO pay.

It means a #GeneralStrike for an end to #CorporateMoneyInPolitics.

It means a #GeneralStrike for a true #LivingWage.

It means a #GeneralStrike for water in #Flint 2/
This is what #BernieSanders meant when he asked us all at his NY rally whether we're willing to fight for someone who doesn't look like us, doesn't worship like we do.

Are we willing to stand up and FIGHT FOR EACH OTHER?!

That will take more than #voting 3/

#Security for #Election2020 is at stake right now.
1) #ElectionSecurity is for our national defense. It is worth investing in.
2) If we do not have security REQUIREMENTS w/funding some states will spend poorly. That is bad for tax payers & bad for voters. #SMARTelections
At our #Senate briefing on #ElectionSecurity we brought national experts on #computer systems, #security and #audits together to demonstrate why it's critically important that congressional funding for election security includes REQUIREMENTS for security.

3/ How EASY is it to change election results? #Princeton Prof of #Computer Science AndrewApppel says it's basic. Voting machines are computers. Computers can be programmed to run malware. It could be done w/ a USB stick & via modem.

It's time for the #NC #Redistricting round up!🤠

In recent weeks, the NC legislature has redrawn NC’s voting district maps for:

✴️NC House (final)

✴️NC Senate (final)

✴️US House (subject to court challenge)

#NCGA #NCPol #gerrymandering #FairMaps 1/
How did we get here?

Usually, #Redistricting happens every 10 years as part of reapportionment to adjust voting districts due to population changes.

Each state draws its own district lines. In #NC, the state legislature draws the maps & Governor cannot veto. 2/
Since 2011, #NC's voting district maps have been repeatedly struck down for #Gerrymandering, which is intentionally manipulating voting maps to create an advantage for a political party or group.

1/6 HOW TO SET GOOD GUIDELINES FOR VOTING SYSTEMS
1) Consult with #cybersecurity experts
2) Do what they say
House bill #HR3351 says "the voter shall have the option to mark his or her ballot by hand." That's good. That's what the majority of cybersecurity experts recommend.
2/6 HOW NOT TO SET GUIDELINES FOR VOTING SYSTEMS
Senate bill #SecureElectionsAct sets up a panel of "independent experts on #ElectionSecurity" then fills it with ppl who are NOT #security experts. If you have to have heart surgery - do you want a surgeon or a hospital admin?
3/6 The #SecureElectionsAct has #bipartisan support, but contrary to current narrative it is NOT less intrusive to states - just less effective. It still sets up standards - but instead of specific ones, they are undefined & will be determined later by a panel of non-security ppl

Thread. BIG NEWS the Voluntary Voting System Guidelines 2.0 #cybersecurity working group is going to recommend NO #Wi-Fi & NO #Internet capability for #voting systems. This does not include #epollbooks but does include tabulators & election management systems. @secureourvotes
This is not a done deal, but it is a good step! The working group recommendations will be given to the Technical Guidelines Development Committee this Fri & they (the TGDC) may vote on these recs (could be up/down) then (supposedly) they go to the EAC for a public comment period.
Keep in mind that even if the EAC adopts these guidelines - they are still VOLUNTARY. States can choose to disregard them, or follow some & not others. Also the recommendation is not for the Wi-Fi capability to be removed, but instead permanently disabled due to cost of removal.

Wow. #Orwellian #Doublespeak Below @KathyBoockvar claims to be part of a bipartisan effort to improve #ElectionSecurity. Yesterday she released a report re-certifying the #ExpressVoteXL through a secret review that was not open to the public. freespeechforpeople.org/wp-content/upl…
3 good government groups made a joint statement about what a charade this #security review of the #ExpressVoteXL was freespeechforpeople.org/election-secur…
“It is disappointing that @KathyBoockvar decided not to be fully transparent” said @kskoglund Chief Technologist of Citizens for Better Elections. “Every petition for reexamination since 1980 has included a demonstration where the public and petitioners were invited."

To claim another is "voting against their interests" is the most asinine claim to make.

Most assuredly, the issuer has zero idea what the other individuals interests actually are.
#election #Election2018 #ElectionFraud
Anyone making such a claim should really state it more accurately... "you voted against my interests"

Some are interested in cradle to grave big brother... Others are not. #justSaying

Folks only make an ass of themselves by assuming...
